Halloween Mummy Dogs

Last night we had Halloween Mummy Dogs for dinner. I know Halloween is still two weeks away, but we just couldn't resist having this fun little treat. I told the kids I wanted to make these and they were so excited.

These yummy little mummies are the perfect kid friendly dinner meal or you can serve them at your next Halloween party. Either way they are sure to be a big hit.


These little mummy dogs are made with refrigerated bread stick dough and hot dogs. That's it just two ingredients making this recipe a snap to prepare, and it is even more fun to eat!

If you can't find bread stick dough then you can also use refrigerated crescent dough. I cut my dough into smaller strips to resemble true mummy bandages.

We were originally going to have these on Halloween night, but the kids wanted to stick to our tradition of ordering pizza instead.

Maybe your family has been invited to a Halloween party and you still need a few ideas. Mummy dogs would be the perfect treat.
 
I know for sure if you show up with these guys at your next party you will definitely be the cool mom.
  Carson was my helper for the night and I must say he is excellent at wrapping bandages. I have included some step by step photos of just how easy it is to make mummy dogs.


Unroll bread stick dough and separate at perforations creating 12 strips.
With knife or pizza cutter, cut each bread stick in half making two thinner strips of dough. You will now have 24 strips of thin bread sticks.

Starting at one end wrap 2 strips of dough around each hot dog to look like "bandages," stretching dough slightly to completely cover hot dog.


About 1/2 inch from one end of each hot dog, separate "bandages" so hot dog shows through for the "face." Place mummy dogs on a large baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until dough is light golden brown.

Let the mummy's cool and add mustard eyes. Serve with macaroni and cheese or french fries. Which ever way you serve these yummy little guys the kids will be so excited. You can cut the hot dogs in half and make mini mummies.

These are too cute! Only 1 of my 3 kids will eat hotdogs, but the other 2 might be tempted if we made these. I've seen so many cute Halloween ideas recently, I need to get busy!

Thank for for your wonderful blog. I made these tonight and they were a big hit with the entire family, and so easy.

I had some string cheese to use up, so made a few mummys using the same process, and it also made excellent cheese sticks.
